kagawa prefecture [jp]: yasuhiro suzuki's fastener boat

only in japan. we so like yasuhiro suzuki's fastener zipper-shaped taxi boat, it truly is poetry in motion. the vessel is part of the launch edition of the setouchi international art festival in japan's kanagawa prefecture. the artist + designer always wanted to 'unzip the sea' and the fastener is designed to create waves while it advances, creating the illusion it opens the ocean behind it. during the festival the vessel runs a scheduled service between the city of takamatsu and megi island [on until oct 31 / reservations required].
